Mesh a geometry without stl file
Hi all,
I have a question regarding snappyHexMesh and would appreciate any help or suggestions.

I have created a mesh using snappyHexMesh where I have a geometry in
stl format and I want to change the shape of my geometry with respect to
some flow parameters and mesh again (e.g. for optimization).

Does anyone know if there is a way to describe a geometry for
snappyHexMesh without using stl file?

E.g. export all surface points from the mesh to a file and read in their location
using snappyHexMesh and use as a surface for the geometry.
